The powers of the collegial body include the development of licensing conditions for conducting gambling business; issuance and revocation of licenses; establishment of requirements for the state system of online monitoring and its administration; consideration of complaints from gamblers and other persons about the actions of gambling operators; submission of proposals to state authorities regarding draft laws and other regulatory documents in the field of gambling; creation of favorable conditions for attracting investments in the gambling sphere, etc.
